Prague

Some of the stations seem to be a homage to Victor Vasarely or kinetic artists of the 1970s. There are thousandfold repetitions of glass or aluminium elements with all stations looking different.

On line A, which was opened in 1978, station walls are covered with aluminium tiles which come in three versions (convex, concave or flat) and in different shades of colour. The designers thus managed to create a stunning, science-fiction-like appearance.
